(Newser) – Want to revisit the Barack Obama you once knew and loved... oh, 20 years ago? Yes, it's a ways back, but it's still fascinating to see the 29-year-old Harvard Law Review editor giving a short spiel on TBS. He had longer hair and, you guessed it, not a wisp of gray when he spoke about the groundbreaking African-American lawyer Charles Hamilton Houston on the "Black History Minute," USA Today reports. (For a more recent Obama video, see him discuss what he forgot during his first 2 years as president.)
